FIREFIGHTERS were called out to help put out a fire which broke out in a bedroom at a home in Redditch this afternoon (Saturday January 4).

Crews were called out at around 1.30pm to a property in Evesham Road. 

It is not known how the fire started but it is believed to have been small.

Hereford and Worcester Fire Service station commander Jon Laight praised the efforts of crews on Twitter saying they "did cracking work to minimise the damage and risk to those involved".
